song of the day: 'cruel summer' by bananarama
now i am determined to get back on schedule! i have been so busy lately, but i'm sure a lot of you can relate. it seems like we've been doing more this summer than we usually do during the school year. or if not, then i'm just worse at budgeting my time right now which is very likely. i mean, i still have piles of clothes to sort through, clean, photograph and post on etsy. i just can't seem to get it done. and it's so hot to be able to do it too. i sweat through my outfit photos but i don't want to stink up something i'm trying to sell! ah it's a vicious cycle.
right now my in-laws are in town. matt and his dad competed in a sprint triathlon yesterday. i was so proud of them both. matt's done a couple other races and he's training for a half-ironman, but he finished faster than ever in the one yesterday. and this is the first tri that his dad had ever done. pretty cool if you ask me.
seeing people reach fitness goals is one of the most exciting things for me. i think because i know how unhealthy i was before i started running. i lived a completely different lifestyle then that i can't even imagine at this point in my life. i wasn't overweight or anything, but i just didn't care what i put in my body. it didn't matter if i skipped meals or if i ate cereal for breakfast lunch and dinner. i would try and exercise but i couldn't commit to anything and i'd be very lazy about it. when i started running, i began eating better, stopped a lot of my bad habits, became more aware of my body and how it feels about certain things. i've dealt with depression a few times in my life but since i've started running, that's all gone. it's amazing how being healthy and fit can change your life. i love it!
and with that, i must get going. i'm heading out to meet with some other ladies to run this morning! have a fabulous day:)
